Publisher's Synopsis

**Winner of the 2023 Royal Society Trivedi Science Book Prize**

Discover the world as you've never seen it before - through the eyes of animals.

'Immersive and mind-blowing' Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees

The Earth teems with sights and textures, sounds and vibrations, smells and tastes, electric and magnetic fields. But every animal is enclosed within its own unique sensory bubble, perceiving only a tiny sliver of this world.

In An Immense World, Ed Yong coaxes us beyond the confines of our own senses, welcoming us into previously unfathomable dimensions - the world as it is truly perceived by other animals. Showing us that in order to understand our world we don't need to travel to other places; we need to see through other eyes.
